My ladies make me feel like a star. They are always so complimentary of my self made clothes that I usually take along a couple of pieces for a Show and Tell segment of our class which they seem to love..This week I took this jacket made last fall
and a top which I haven't shown you yet but will be my next post as it is part of a threesome.
I bought the fabric for this jacket online at Mood but there is a slightly heavier version at Fabricville right now and on sale too.
The ladies were very happy with my project ideas this year and I admit that I always put a lot of effort in coming up with something new. I also make plenty of samples.
Besides the reading shawl shown here, the mug thingy shown here, the Rachel Comey skirt but of course lengthened,,the yoga pant from former years but made into slim pants or jeggings, this year,Pinterest was a big factor in the other projects I chose.
I admit to being totally addicted to Pinterest These images fueled my creative fire and I can't stop making the tee shirt necklaces and scarves.
I made many samples but here are a few.
I admit that some of my samples were made using fabric yardage rather than tee shirts and it's been fun experimenting.
I love this one where I used the ring from a belt and stoppers instead of beads .This was my inspiration.
I made larger "tubes" to use as scarves. The fabric for bothof these is a sweater knit.
I added a bit of braiding to this one,
Another big favorite from Pinterest was this type of scarf because it uses up fabric scraps that are a little larger.
And these are scarves I made.
If you want some instructions on any of these items, please let me know, and I'll post directions
at Diana's Sewing Lessons.
I managed to sew other things this week because I declared a sewing vacation for myself. I needed a break from housework .I'm not finished what I want to show you next but you know I'll be back.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by.
